Share post:


Bhubaneswar: Higher education is critical for societal aspirations, developmental priorities and social values, all of which must be assessed, nurtured and refined regularly, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday said.

Speaking at an Academic Session on “Transformation of Technical and Professional Education in Line With New Education Policy – 2020”, here organized by Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT), Patnaik said technology is dominating every bit of our life, every part of our society.

“So, we must focus on reshaping our technology education for the changing needs of the 21st century”, he said.

The Chief Minister said the future of our civilization banks solely on the quality and direction of our education. Our future depends on how successfully we prepare our children for the future.

Appreciating the BPUT for the meet, he said the National Education Policy 2020 is a meaningful attempt to bring about relevance, and set the tone and the direction at all levels of education.

Drafted by eminent scientist K. Kasturirangan, the policy aims at transforming our education system, he said adding the meet will help bring awareness among the education community on the new policy and deliberate on the challenges and opportunities for its implementation.

Patnaik expected the deliberations will be meaningful and come out with clear proposals and suggestions for effective implementation of the New Education Policy-2020.

The state government, he said, is ready to provide all necessary support in the endeavour for transformation of our technological education.
